Today I'm asking for your help once more my little lammies: I've entered a Facebook competition to model for clothing brand Fever London and I'd *love* your votes please. I mentioned it in Monday's post so some of you may have voted already... thank you so much (and don't forget you can vote for me once a day - see below)! Either click the image above or go this link:
Just two steps: "Like" their page, then click "Vote" for me :)
It's their Perfect Fit Competition through Facebook and there will be five winners, one from each size category. The brand are looking for women of "real sizes", and as there's no age restriction either I think it's a brilliant idea! They want the winners to model their SS14 collection of vintage inspired clothes and it would truly be a great big tick on my Blogger's Bucket List to do this.
Just one thing: you can vote once every 24 hours, so if you remember on any other day (till 19 February) to vote again pleeeeeeeeease do so - thank you thank you thank you - MWAH!
Talking of Blogger's Bucket Lists...
Modelling for a brand would be such a big deal - it's something that I couldn't possibly have contemplated doing when I started this blog, especially at my age! With writing the blog my confidence has grown over the last 2-3 years, and now it's something I definitely want to do, and will be actively pursuing this. So it's number one on my Blogger's Bucket List that I've been thinking about for a while, which is currently a list of blog goals that I want to achieve this year.
It'll be my first year blogging full time, so I need to plan for the whole year. And why not have a mixture of realistic and wouldn't-that-be-great-if goals? Here's the list!
1. To model for a brand or publication
At least where the pictures will be seen somewhere other than my blog (website, catalogue, magazine, etc.). You never know, if everyone votes for me every day in the Fever London competition it may come true...!
2. To become the most successful over 40 fashion blogger in the UK
This is subjective, I know, but I'm fiercely competitive (in the nicest way, of course)! My competitive streak simply makes me strive to continually improve. Hence wanting to win this competition.
3. To transfer my blog over to Wordpress
I want it designed so it's exactly to my specifications. There's only so far I can go with Blogger and I feel I've got to the optimum point with it.
4. To promote the Accentuate The Positive Project more.
I launched this project last year following the much-read and talked-about How To Make The Most Of Your Best Feature post, and it aims to get women to be proud of their best bits and show them off to the world. I've had many amazing women contribute already, and I need to commit more time to getting the message out there. Please take a look and join in if you haven't already.
5. To get in the top 250 fashion blogs on Bloglovin.
I'm currently no.305 - so close to breaking the 300! If I'm in the top 250 by the end of the year I'll be so proud of myself [insert cheesy grin here].
6. To organise a blogger meet-up
One that's specifically geared towards older bloggers. I want to do something that'll cater for UK bloggers, maybe those who haven't been to a meet-up before, either because they've been organised by much younger bloggers or, like me, not gone because they're for mummy bloggers (I'm not a mum). I was wondering why no-one my age was organising anything, so decided I should do something about it! I want it to be open to all age groups (no restrictions on who can come), but I'd gear it towards the 30+ ages more and probably hold it in the "middle" of the south of England somewhere. If you have an interest in this please email me with your name, blog URL and town/city so I can put you on my list of people to contact - notdressedaslamb(at)gmail(dot)com - and watch this space!
So that's my goals for 2014 out there in the bloggesphere - I've declared them now so there can be no wriggling out of at least trying my damnedest with my six goals. Thank you so much again for voting and all your fantastic support - I lost my last style-off competition by just one vote (gutted) so every vote really DOES count!!
What about you - any blog goals for 2014? I'd love to know!
